Course content

Critically engage with debates around the relationships between gender, violence and conflict. You’ll consider perspectives from anthropology, international relations, sociology and law.

You’ll have the opportunity to explore critical and feminist approaches to social research and its ethics. The course focuses on:

  • gendered experiences of violence
  • conflict and peace militarisation
  • masculinities and femininities
  • representations, embodiments and the institutionalisation of violence.

You’ll be based in the School of Global Studies, which is a unique interdisciplinary school. Our international faculty undertake cutting-edge research, and we run a distinctive programme of guest lectures, research seminars and events. Our campus is also home to an active student body, hosting frequent debates, lectures, films and social events covering global and political issues.
